Irish bagpipes and violin, Columbia 33350-F. See solo recordings of these musicians for biographical information. Carney gave lodging to Morrison upon his arrival in New York City, and they made for a marvelous duet. The name of the first tune is inevitably used for another reel. Willie Clancy recorded it on a 78 in the late 50s on the Gael-Linn label, calling it Michael Carney's Reel. Subsequently (?) he took to calling it the Ravelled Hank of Yarn, by which title it is now known. Patsy Touhey recorded this setting of the Duke of Leinster on various wax cylinder records, including the surprising triplet in the second octave during the second part.

Amazing set of Irish/Uilleann Pipe recordings
Many thanks to whomever is uploading this amazing and extensive collection of classic Irish/Uilleann Pipe recordings. I picked this specific recording more-or-less at random for a review, it's impossible to choose a favorite, I could give five stars to all of them!
